Overview

The Cockapoo is highly intelligent, retaining much of that from the Poodle breed, and becoming very popular as a companion animal. A sturdy little dog, they have a great disposition. This breed can also be somewhat passive and can also be dog aggressive if not given the proper socialization.

Character

The Cockapoo is loyal, intelligent, and very affectionate. This dog is fairly easy to train being mixed with what is said to be one of the smartest dogs in the world. Being that this dog is mixed with the Poodle, he makes a wonderful training student. Having a very sweet nature, this dog is sure to steal the hearts of many.

Temperament

This breed is eager to please, vigorous, and friendly, making him a popular choice as a companion. The Cockapoo generally gets along with children and other animals, but should always be supervised. The Poodle and Spaniel in this mix can both have aggression problems if not dealt with at a young age.

Care

The Cockapoo should be brushed and combed regularly. It is said that this breed is little to no shedding, however when being brushed hair does come out making shedding even less common. Clipping is required at least once a year.

Coat

The Cockapoo is a mixed breed without a breed standard, however the preferred coat is dense, curly or heavily wavy, and close. The Cockapoo should carry coat characteristics from both the Poodle and the Cocker Spaniel.

Training

The Cockapoo is a very intelligent dog, making training a breeze at times. This dog does well in obedience, and with the right training techniques and proper handling this dog will thrive. This dog requires firm handling, but can be somewhat sensitive to the tone of your voice so training should be consistent and relatively firm yet gentle.

Activity

The Cockapoo is a happy-go-lucky dog that loves to run and play with his family. No yard is fine, but this dog does require daily walks. They also have the tendency to overeat so exercise is needed for this dog to stay healthy.
